Chard Reservoir – 29th March 2009

I only fish the ‘resi’ a few times a year and looking through my old diaries I couldn’t find an entry where I’d fished it as early in the year as this.

Everybody wanted to draw one of the hot pegs, which Robin had put in again. 125 or 55 were the pegs most people wanted, Rob had also put some pegs in at Ilford and these were
